This is a small hole-in-the-wall in a mostly working class warehouse district, but the locals know it well. The staff is very friendly and the food is always fresh. Today I had the fried chicken chunks with black beans/white rice. The plantains on the side were so sweet. I also ordered the bean & cheese stuffed pupusa and although it's made from corn, it was so fluffy it tasted like mashed potato. It came with a side of crunchy cabbage and red dipping sauce. Everything here is made to order and authentic Salvadoran all the way!

The staff are very friendly and responsive. I tried the combination dish to include a taco, tostada, and enchilada. It was good and so were the sides, especially the beans! The tea was good too. I'll come back again to satisfy my Mexican food craving.

I find the lunch average (Mexican ordered), but comes with a large portion. Different was the rice which is white and has veggies mixed in, a nice touch.
The ice tea is fresh and robust, served in a mug.
The dinner menu looks really good so, I will have to return to give it a try.

I had lunch here today and it was delicious. Service was really fast and friendly. Prices are not expensive, I had a huge platter of rice, with a delicious sauce and a really good chicken burrito. Place is small but quaint. I highly recommend this place but a lunch break from work if your office is nearby. A real treat.

The food was delicious and priced reasonably. If you never had Salvadoran food give it a try. I had the #2 combo and it was deferent but delicious.
